Most of my work deals with positive, uplifting themes and indeed my intention as an artist is to renovate and reinvigorate the spirit. The path to a full life, however, requires mastery of another skill … the confront of evil.
It’s important to me that my art communicates … after all, that’s what’s its for. This one is a heartfelt social message that our world is a tapestry of lots of different people of a lot of different colors, cultures and faiths. We must not only get along, but we must help one another, uplift one another … we’re all in this together.
Lots of kudos for this one. I’ve said it before, but I love the big format. If it weren’t for the pain and expense of shipping, framing, storing I’d make them all monsters … but then, that’s the beauty of digital … I can carry thousands in my pocket.
I am often asked to do portraits … I don’t often do portraits. My wife does portraits, and she’s really good at it. So, I did a portrait of my wife … mine are impressions; hers are much more representational but she really conveys the spirit.
